Before this encounter, Havant & Waterlooville were favourite to win the Ryman Premier Division, after their 1-0 defeat over 2nd place Bognor Regis Town, giving them a 2-point advantage, with only this game to play. However, the title-race is not over, as Bognor have the better goal difference, and the better form, and during, hosted out-of-form Metropolitan Police, who have only won one of their last five league games.
Earlier this season at Westleigh Park (31st December 2016), both sides took home a point after a 1-1 draw. If today’s game were to follow suit, and also result in a draw, the title could be decided on goal-difference, dependent on surrounding results.
